Our Language Anapaests and Dactyls

Anapaests like to stroll with a good rhythmic beat.

Anapaests like to glide on their two rhythmic feet.

     Anapaests like to sing diddy DUM diddy DUM

     And now listen: they sound like the beat of a drum.

 

They can dance in words that you write on your page

And they’re so good for poets, whatever your age.

    An-a-PAESTS,  an-a-PAESTS!  You must soak up that sound

    And for certain they'll polish your poems I've found.
